Investigation of anticancer mechanism of thiadiazole-based compound in human non-small cell lung cancer A549 cells.

In this study, we have synthesized several compounds and examined their cytotoxic effects on human non-small cell lung cancer A549 cells. We found that GO-13 ((E,E)-2,5-bis[4-(3-dimethyl-aminopropoxy)styryl]-1,3,4-thiadiazole) is the most effective one by the MTT assay. Furthermore, the GO-13-induced apoptotic reaction was identified based on several… CONTINUE READING
